Vancouver-based Rover Metals has been directed by the US Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to develop a comprehensive plan of operations before commencing any exploration drilling at its Let’s Go Lithium (LGL) project located in rural Nevada.
To comply with this requirement, the company will initiate discussions with environmental consulting firms this week to seek assistance in creating the plan of operations and conducting necessary environmental assessments under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
As part of this process, Rover Metals has reached an agreement with the vendor of the LGL project, GenGold2, which involves certain concessions regarding the timing and amounts of future option payments in response to the BLM’s directive.
The LGL claims are adjacent to Lhoist North America’s Amargosa Valley Specialty Clays mine, which has been active since 1972. Rover Metals highlights that, to the best of its knowledge, there have been no adverse environmental impacts resulting from over five decades of specialty clay mining in the region. In an effort to engage with the community and address any concerns, the company’s management, led by CEO Judson Culter, plans to organize townhall meetings and community engagement sessions throughout the NEPA process.
